PROCEEDINGS IN RELATION TO DRAFT RESOLUTIONS IN THE SEJM OF THE REPUBLIC OF POLAND
Languages of publication
The article deals with the mode by which resolutions are adopted by the Sejm. The authors focus on the procedure for adopting resolutions whose drafts are published in Sejm Papers and, in particular, on the aspects distinguishing it from the procedure for adopting bills. They describe the issues related to introducing draft resolutions, including the formal requirements for draft resolutions, as well as the subsequent stages of the proceedings, indicating the procedural differences and exceptions that occur in relation to the different categories of resolutions. They point out the issues of examining the procedure for making resolutions, and the acceptable scope of modification of a draft resolution in the course of work in the Sejm. These issues are illustrated with numerous examples of parliamentary practice. Reference is also made to other acts adopted by the Sejm in accordance with the procedure provided for resolutions (such as declarations, appeals and statements). In addition, the article describes the rules for publication of the resolutions in the official journal. The issue of discontinuation of work in the Sejm in relation to draft resolutions is also raised and attention drawn to making resolutions aimed at removing inconsistencies in a statute declared to be partly unconstitutional by the Constitutional Tribunal (acting under preventive review). Finally, the authors formulate conclusions on the need for amendments to the rules of procedure taking into account the specific nature of the process of passing resolutions.
